Integrate sensors and IoT (internet of things) technology with CAFM software

Sensors and internet of things (IoT) technology monitor an asset’s condition, gathering readings such as temperature, humidity, pressure and location, and any abnormal readings create an alert which is sent directly to QFM or P3rform software. A job is then automatically raised and an operative dispatched, with information on the necessary parts and asset location listed on the system and accessible via a mobile app.

Sensors also allow centralized control of the asset network, for example if a meeting room is booked through QFM, the IoT system can turn on the lights and heating to the room, ensuring a comfortable working environment and reducing costs by only providing energy to occupied rooms. Sensors can even be placed on consumables like printer toners, alerting the procurement system to order a new cartridge before the current one is depleted. In this way, problems can be rectified before breakage, reducing downtime and saving money.

Sensors can also assist with space planning in the workplace. Placed in offices, data is created to show areas with most traffic. When combined with space management software module within QFM, scenarios can be created to plan the most efficient use of office space.

  • Automate job logging and engineer dispatch
  • Rectify problems before breakage by alerting QFM of data changes or anomolies
  • Reduce costs through faster and more efficient rectification
  • Identify underused assets or spaces
